Captain Maurice Suckling (1725-1778)

Nelson owed his entry into the Navy to the influence of his uncle Maurice Suckling, his mother's brother, captain of the 64-gun ship 'Raisonnable' when he joined in 1771. Suckling aimed to help his widowed brother-in-law, the Rev. Edmund Nelson, by taking one of his sons to sea after the death of their mother. Horatio was keen to go but Suckling wrote to Edmund: 'What has poor Horace done, who is so weak, that he, above all the rest should be sent to rough it out at sea? But let him come and the first time we go into action a cannon ball may knock off his head and provide for him at once.'

National Maritime Museum

The National Maritime Museum has the mission to communicate the importance of the sea, the maritime industry and the relationship of time and the stars on everybody's lives. It achieves this in part by offering its archive of vintage images and manuscripts to the public. One way you can engage with these fantastic bodies of work is to find an image that you find particularly compelling and then have it reproduced as either a canvas or framed print, or even in the form of a gift such as a mug, jigsaw puzzle or mouse mat. Other types of gifts are available and you can explore the gifting options open to you on the respective image page.
